Holding dragonflies and damselflies.

I believe that it's generally better to hold dragonflies and damselflies by the wings if they are handled (after first carefully bring the wings together over their 'back').
This prevents them from trying to escape, and will also prevent accidental damage from too much pressure being applied to the legs/body.

... I'd rather capture them only on pixels.
